Ahh yeah! It’s that time of year again! We’ve done How to Dance Kpop Style for 2008, 2009, 2010, and now, we bring you How to Dance Kpop Style 2011. Sweet!

We asked you to vote for your favourite dances of the year via our Kpop Charts, which we are now using to determine who we will review every week for Kpop Music Monday. We’ve made a full playlist in the video above, so you can watch every video on our list after our review, or, if you want to view them one by one, we’ve outlined them below. Also, check out our reviews for each video, if you haven’t already. Infinite’s “Before the Dawn” was the only one we didn’t review, unfortunately. I wonder why that didn’t get voted in?

Also, as we mentioned in our Teaser for How to Dance Kpop Style 2011, we’re giving out CDs to the top commenters on our Kpop Charts for the Top 3 videos, which, in this case, are Big Bang’s “Tonight,” 2NE1’s “I Am The Best,” and Infinite’s “Before the Dawn”. And so, congrats to NaToTheWak, Eliza Carter, and taecitoff. If you’re one of the winners, please send us an email via our Contact Page using the same email address from your comment, and we’ll mail out your band’s CD ASAP!.

And, even though it didn’t make it on the list, here’s our favourite dance of the year. Seriously guise! How did this not make it on the list? This dance is so full of win. Go to any Korean club, put this song on, and tell me that everyone isn’t doing this freaking dance and loving it! Ah!


And, lastly, don’t forget to check out our bloopers here:


  1. You guys didnt make one for 2012 D:

  2. Smile big :D

    Can’t wait for 2012 list.

  3. Don’t Get why t-ara’s roly poly didnt get on the list even simonandmartina said ”
    This dance is so full of win ” Im so mad >:(

  4. I was surprised that Roly Poly wasn’t in the list i TOTALLY AGREE with simon and martina? What in the World man? WHY?

  5. I literally Died when I saw the Demon armpit….oh my gawd funniest thing I’ve ever seen !!

  6. I totally agree with everyone who has already pointed out that this was just a popularity contest and not about the dances. And that you guys should stick to just picking the dances yourselves. Cause this list… is just so bad. I mean, Big Bang won? What the? They don’t even freakin’ dance! Sorry but you guys failed big time with this. :( Please only let people vote like crazy for K-pop Music Mondays, I really don’t care what is voted for. But delusional fans will vote for stuff like this without even -thinking- or -considering- other options. They’re nuts.

  7. Lorena Abrodos

    ajajaja I looooooooooooooove this videooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

  8. Parabens o seu site esta muito bom. tem otimos conteudos de noticias
    desejo muito sucesso pra vc… 

  9. Infinite should be number 1  thought IMO ~ :) ♥

  10. You guys should do more of your K-Pop interpretive dances like last time :D

  11. Shiroki ;3;

    The votes counting were a MESS! For real… And U-Kiss’ Neverland was like almost 4500 votes (all the facebook, twitter, voting, blablabla), while Big Bang’s Tonight (dance? hm) was barely 4000 votes. So… How on Earth Big Bang won? o_o
    I mean, I don’t know because I stopped voting days ago, if someone can answer me… :/

  12. What happended to lucifer?

    • Lucifer was a 2010 song. Shinee was in Japan releasing awkward re-makes of all their awesome Korean songs throughout most of 2011.

      WHO’S READY FOR THE COMEBACK!?!?!??! WOOOOO!!!!…..>.>….. i guess i’m excited. (*^_^*)

  13. Callie Smith

    I just discovered you guys, and I just want to tell you how much I love your website! You guys are fantastic, and I can’t wait to see more. Thank you so much for all you’re doing :)

  14. First of all, FOR REAL!? Big Bang as number one for HOW TO DANCE–DANCE being the operative word here–K-pop style? How sad. I just knew I am the Best would be #1. Or maybe ANY group like 2NE1 known for dancing…. as opposed to a group universally known for NOT dancing. Maybe this should be changed next year to “Popularity Contest 2012.” I know it’s not your fault, but these were kinda…. not it. Exhibit A. The dance for Nothing’s Over was much more memorable than BTD. I mean, the shoulder shimmy alone! “YOU WANNA LEAVE THIS GIRL?? HUH??” I laughed about that for a week. (Even Be Mine was a more awesome dance!)

    My point is, YOU GUYS, SIMON AND MARTINA, should just pick the videos, like you did back in 2008 and 2009. Those kpop style videos were full of win and awesomeness. And all the videos were legit dance videos. It’s cool that you give us, you know, your fans, control sometimes. But I need ya’ll to take the wheel next year on this one, because clearly we don’t really know what we’re doing.

    Second of all, so that this post isn’t completely me being a wet blanket, pickles.

  15. i don’t really like snsd dance,where is kara step??

    So I was completely captivated by Simon’s shirt. (Moreso than usual)
    “Is that…NOOOOooo, it can’t be. Can it?”
    And then Simon turned around to confirm it, and I paused the video to go do my happy dance.
    Simon + Khal Drogo + kpop = DIED AND GONE TO HEAVEN.

    Reason why they didnt make it as a “tutorial”


    Any portion of inclusion (even one second) in a video WITHOUT the permission of the original copyright holder is an infringement of the copyright law.

    That is why Simon and Martina only LINK the original videos and NOT include them in the actual video.

    There are exceptions; if the video is for educational purposes or for research purposes in an academic setting, they are exempt from the copyright laws. However, this is neither. It is for primarily profit as this is their primary occupation now.

  18. Byeonguk Yook

    You guys are totally shameless. I’d be afraid to shoot a video in the middle of a park for fear that people may thing I am a weirdo. I do have a question. In you experience do you feel that Kpop fans tend to be disproportionately teenage girls?

  19. T-shirt = Mr. T
    Its a Mr.T-shirt! XD

  20. alicia ouyang

    Aww no dance tutorials? I guess Ukiss was close enough, but come on, I was expecting more pet the giraffe, brush of the spider, make a plane, high five yourself and miss, quick recover, make a birdie, pet the camel, catch some snow, sugar rush, pat yourself in the stomach…yeah that’s all I got XD

      maybe we might have that this year 2012 :D SHINee’s making a comeback XD 

      yea i was hoping it would be more about teaching us dancing but it was still quite funny. Ukiss’s was the closest but i think they should have showed the original at the left corner whilst Martario was dancing and it would be even funnier ^^ plus we’d know what part Martario is dancing.

    I’m so happy to see that Spudgy is doing just fine!! Go Spudgy!!! :3

  23. This year’s how to dance kpop style wasn’t as good as last years. Sorry, but I didn’t really enjoy it. Take SNSD out and this would be perfect. #justsaying. 
    I loved how you guys could make learning dances fun, just take SNSD out please. Thanks.

  25. love this video its so funny! i agree with simon and martina i voted for roly poly and I was surprised it didn’t make it on the list. love the dance to roly poly:)!

  26. I was laughing all the way through this video (including bloopers), except for the armpit gag. That traumatized me.  ;p

    Congrats to all the winners!

  27. SOOOO love this… YG Ent. top 2… go BJ’s and VIPs… congrats to all the fandoms too… i hope JYJ songs were there too :)

  28. Haha, really liked the one for Infinte’s BTD, well done guise!  But as some others, I also wish you had showed more of the dances yourselves, that’s allways the funniest parts :)

  29. Acha is so much better than Mr Simple. TVXQ and UKISS shouldda been hinger. But as I am YG biased am happy with the top two (Big Bang should have put bits of Tonite’s stage dance in the video, cause yeah otherwise its not a dance video LOL)

  30. damn it! it’s a shame you guys took out tick tack had voted so much for that one!

  31. As always your videos are so fun and entertaining to watch! Although I have noticed that now the how to dance kpop vids have become more about talking about the videos than actually teaching people how to dance them? the one for u-kiss was great, i laughed so hard :)

  32. I agree with 2ne1’s dance. That it really suits the song.

  33. I can’t believe i waited 1 year for this!! XD hahaha!! It was worth it!! Now… have to wait other year for “How to Dance Kpop Style 2012″… :)

  34. bigbangfosho

    Guys, if you want to complain, don’t put the blame on Simon and Martina. They weren’t the ones choosing the songs. We were! 

    Simon and Martina: Next time, I would honestly consider just choosing the dances yourselves. And maybe not mention the MV so much, and just focus on the dance.

    Still, I understand how this years wasn’t as interesting: they were stuck with songs that had mediocre dances. 

  35. Eliza Carter

    Congratulations to everyone who voted! I’m super glad 2NE1 got 2nd place for their video, even though I beleive many people had confusion about the new voting page: lots of people were there voting for kpop music mondays, others voting for videos that had already been reviewed and others (like myself) voting only for the dance contest.
    Anyway, an awesome year for kpop! Thank you for the video guise and the cd! 

  36. I had nightmares D: and I’m blaming Simon…lol
